Thank you to classic69 for putting this newsletter together for us  :rockon

Introduction:
The next few months are the best months of year for the Canada355 community.  Not only because the weather is starting to get warmer and the sun is starting to shine, not only because of the shows, meets and mudding available.  But because in the next few months Canada355 will be hosting its two most important events of the year, the 8th Annual Western Canada Super Meet and 6th Annual South Eastern Canada Super Meet.

The first event will be taking place June 10th-12th in Radium, BC and it's not too late to attend. The 8th Annual Western Canada Super Meet only comes once a year, it is a fun filled weekend, consisting of show n shine, potluck lunch and dinner, with the ability to mod if needed cause this is the time to get all the help you need, awards and raffle prizes and lots of shenanigans and memories to be made.  Click HERE for more details regarding this years 8th Annual Western Canada Super Meet.

Are you located east of Ontario and wishing that there was a super meet for you to attend?  This year Canada355's Annual South Eastern Canada Super Meet unfortunately will not be taking place, but you can still attend a BBQ at slade's house in Brantford, Ontario.  This "Meat n Meet" event will be taking place at slade's house on July 16th, if you wish to attend, please click HERE for more details regarding this "Meat n Meet" event.
